But life has a way of throwing curveballs, and she meets Drew on the road, someone who coincidentally is from Oldcastle. He is a confirmed bachelor, an Oxford English professor, whose mother is still a force to be reckoned with in his life.
Lina and Drew’s attraction is immediate, but they both hold back for strong reasons—she will soon have a procedure to become pregnant, and he has never been able to commit to anyone, why take a chance at this stage of his life, especially if it might include fatherhood? As Lina uncovers the truth about her birth mother, and inadvertently her birth father, and Drew faces off with his mother, they become more deeply involved and step-by-step fall in love. Until both Lina and Drew’s meddling mothers throw a wrench in the works. To use Lina’s term, Drew, it seems, is a bit of a “momma’s boy”, and she is livid! I was also angry at Drew…until, of course, he and Lina work things out in the best possible way.
In One Truth Revealed, Ms. Grant takes us back to a lovely, quaint English village and makes the reader feel right at home-sweet-home.
Lina Bright is ten days away from undergoing Artificial Insemination in London. She doesn’t need a husband. Since her Mum is pressuring her, she travels to Oldcastle to meet her biological Mother under the guise of opening up a school there. Annie a spinster runs the village tea shop, Lina will keep her mothers secret while trying to find out more about her Father.
Enter Drew Compton who at 40 is still a bachelor, determined to remain so alone with his book. He hates his mothers secrets so he seldom returns to Oldcastle.
But a chance meeting with Lina leaves him intrigued and puzzled about this woman from London.
As Lina’s plans for a school become a reality, romance blossoms, but roadblocks ensue. Will Lina and Drew trust in each other to overcome the difficulties and create a future together?
This is also where one finds out how lies and secrets can come back and hunt you, things to surface and will Lina and Drew get through all of and find the happiness they both deserve, well as much as I would love to keep going, I can't I can't give the plot away, its a fantastic story, well writen that dragged me into their lives, the characters were fantastic.
I have to admit first off that I didn’t love the start of this book. Lina felt vaguely “stalkerish” when she saw a cute guy in a car and follows him to his destination, then positions herself in a manner to meet with him. I don’t think he realized what was going on, but I was a little icked out by her behavior. Drew, however, was absolutely charming and I could see why Lina was intrigued by him. Conveniently, he was on his way to the same small town she was. And once I got to know Lina better, I was definitely on her side.
Once they reached Oldcastle, things really got fun and busy. I really adore small town stories, because everyone is always all up in everyone else’s business and it’s just a hoot. While not laugh-out-loud funny, I did have a smile on my face quite often while reading. I just adored so many of the folks there!
I appreciated Lina’s attempts to figure out who her father was and I loved how she integrated herself into the townspeople’s lives. She was as charmed as I was–most of the time. But there are so many secrets and lies, some generations old, that it causes problems with her goals, and with her relationship with Drew. I appreciated the somewhat slower pace of the book as it felt exactly right with the setting and characters as well.
If you like a character driven story, with a romance between somewhat more mature characters (Lina is 35, Drew is 40) I can definitely recommend this. My quibbles were few and my enjoyment was high.
